Popped in last Friday for the first time in a few months and it's still as good as ever. The early bird just can't be beaten in terms of quality of food and value for money. Great atmosphere too.

This is simply the best refuge for a family friendly lunch in the city. There is plenty of space (to park buggies!) and even some toys for young kids. The food is consistently good and far better than you normally get for the money. The menu is sort of tapas with a good variety of dishes and daily specials. Our... More

Had a meal here recently, excellent in every way we had in our company a wheelchair user and it stood out that the staff either had had excellent training ,or a great deal of common sense, the attention to detail eg, pointing out bathroom, providing straw for drink without having to be asked was exemplary, if only other establishments would...

Came here recently with a friend for a drink, I was very impressed by the building itself and the layout of the whole bar and restaurant, great pint of Guinness in there and a really relaxed and friendly mood in there too!

It was a really great address to eat. One of the only place where you can have diner late (around 22:00). The atmosphere is really special, nice and makes you feel good. Food was really good. I recommand you to go!

Just got back from dinner at this really lovely, friendly and fun restaurant. The Black Market cocktail bar was fantastic - I would highly recommend the Espresso Martini which was served by a really friendly bar tender. It was one of the best I've tasted! It was a lovely quirky setting up some stairs in the side of the restaurant,... More
